Major League Record Book: Career Runs Scored

Ok, folks, we’re ready for the next set of record books. We’ve already covered the League and minor league set, so we now have the major leagues.

As with the minor league series, we’ll start with the 2006-2019 list, that I feel is 99% accurate. Then the second set will be the all-time list, which is very much less accurate. As usual, if you, Brilliant Reader, know of a player that I’ve missed, please let me know.

So we start with runs scored:

2006-2019
1 Dan Murphy Luray ’04-5 700
2 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 594
3 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 525
4 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 391
5 Cory Spangenberg Winchester ’10 154
6 Tommy La Stella Haymarket ’09 133
7 Collin Cowgill Covington ’05 83
8 Tyler White Haymarket ’10 76
9 Ryan Schimpf Luray ’08 74
10 Clint Robinson Harrisonburg ’05-6 63
11 Eric Campbell Luray ’06 53
12 Mac Williamson Harrisonburg ’11 51
13 Joey Butler New Market ’06 33

The only change on this one is that Tyler White moved from 10th up to 8th. The top eight on this list are still active.

All-Time
1 Steve Finley Harrisonburg ’85 1443
2 Juan Pierre Harrisonburg ’97 1075
3 Reggie Sanders Winchester ’87 1037
4 Brett Gardner New Market ’03-04 876
5 Mo Vaughn Harrisonburg ’87 861
6 Aubrey Huff Staunton ’97 806
7 Mike Lowell Waynesboro ’93 771
8 David Eckstein Harrisonburg ’95-6 701
9 Dan Murphy Luray ’05 700
10 Darren Lewis Harrisonburg 607
11 Jason Kipnis Covington ’06-7 594
12 John Kruk New Market ’81 582
13 Brandon Inge Waynesboro ’96 563
14 Johnny Grubb Charlottesville 553
15 Jon Jay Staunton ’04 525
16 Gene Richards Harrisonburg 502
17 Tom Brookens Waynesboro 477
18 Chris Hoiles Harrisonburg 415
19 Yonder Alonso Luray ’06 391
20 Denny Walling Waynesboro ’75 372

Steve Finley needs to be in the VBL Hall of Fame, I think.

Brett Gardner moved up two spots with his strong 2019, and Jason Kipnis moved from 14th up to 11th. Yonder Alonso joined the list this year, knocking off Billy Sample, who had 371 career runs scored.
